Any playa haters gonna be ripping shit off can look somewhere else.
Druffalo loves Steinski. His collages and scratch-ups still rule cool. There are many mixes floating around the web that are different in title but identical in content. Let us help you to sort out the essentials:
What Does It All Mean? is the definitive anthology of all things Steinski. It includes all the lessons, collages and the complete Nothing To Fear mix CD. Burning Out Of Control is Steinski’s seminal Sugarhill mastermix. Live From The Basement is a live mix from 2006, Shop Shop is a studio mix from 2007, and Who Owns Culture? is a live mix with Double Dee, recorded at the Irving Plaza in Jan 2008. Furthermore there are the Rough Mix shows for WFMU. You can purchase those at Steinski’s website.
There is so much misinformation about Hip Hop culture, it keeps us tossin’ and turnin’. Just look at the picture above. Kids, this is not the way we do it. We recommend to start from scratch (haha!) and to follow the chronological survey of Hip Hop music made by the The Rub, and listen how the sound deteriorates over the years. This should give you the determination to improve things.
Seemingly Autechre got a clue from our recent blog entries concerning The Saint and recorded a twelve hour webcast. It’s got a lot of decent Hip Hop in it, hence it serves our other mission and deserves a mention. You can download it here. And always remember to pronounce the last syllable of their name like Mark E Smith would do.
The Druffalo mission to save hip hop continues. This time we turn the spotlight on DJ Moneyshot, who is the true successor of anything wildstyle.
